I was trying to remind myself about collinearity and suppression in regression recently:

Maybe, besides what Roger says, your regression has some issues with collinearity? Not that this is always bad, as the the above article says.

You might look at the Stata command -vif-, but also the user written command -collin-, to understand more about your predictors as a set, and why each individually predicts Y, whereas as a set you have a significant model but lose significance on each individual coefficient.
